The film, Screenwriting, and Book-to-Script Contest
Honoring the best filmmakers, screenwriters, and authors worldwide.
We are an IMDB Qualifying Festival -- Winners will be added to our IMDB page.
Every winner in each genre and category will receive a laurel and a certificate. The laurel can be placed on their screenplay title page and/or poster and a blog shout-out.
The three Grand Jury Award winners will automatically be entered for the Grand Jury Golden Award. The Grand Jury Golden Award winner will receive $250, a laurel, and a certificate.
This is an IMDB Qualifying Festival. Winners will be added as they are announced.
